Good for the heart

My sister Charlotte came to town on Monday night on her way to start opening the cottage up north. Fenner loves Charlotte for all of the right reasons. I've said this before and I'll say it again. Charlotte is love and perspective personified. If you need someone to listen to your woes and give sage balanced advice she's your gal.

She'll also kindly and gently tell you when it's time to buck up and make the best of it. When Auntie Char Char comes there's never a rush to do anything and always focussed love and anchored attention. It was just what Fenner needed this week.
Snuggles and stories, unrushed, unadulterated familiarity. The needs of a kid with no solid routine and a whole lot of seemingly out of control change.
Char Char recently acquired a killer cute little kitten and she doesn't like to leave little Kate behind when she comes to visit. Fenner met Kate last time Charlotte came to visit and the distance apart has only made her heart fonder - if not more scary for poor Kate.

Also, it became apparent that Fenner comes by her crack quite naturally as demonstrated at 0:31 secondsd of this little vignette.
